Lyrics

Marjorie, sixty-three
She's on her feet
Working in a parking lot

She's missing half of her teeth
And looking at diabetes and a heart attack

She ain't got retirement plans
Except to work until she can't
She ain't got retirement plans

She got a bad pair of knees
Needs surgery, but they don't want to pay for it

The doctor says she should rest, take a break
But she can't afford to call in sick

She ain't got retirement plans
Except to work until she can't
She ain't got retirement plans

A bunch of kids driving in a Mercedes Benz
Pull into a parking spot

As they're walking past, the one girl laughs
And she says, Why don't you get yourself a real job

Marjorie ain't got much to say
She's just waiting on her cigarette break
Where she can take out a picture of her kids
And linger on that happiness
You gotta get it where you can
When there ain't no retirement plan
